This is interesting. Note, Paul's water is pretty soft. What is the Southern California water like in terms of KH/GH?

I used Flourish Nitrogen briefly in soft NYC water and dropped it quite quickly to go to KNO3. I seemed to have difficulty avoiding green water when dosing Flourish Nitrogen. I notice Paul doses relatively small amounts of Flourish Nitrogen (for a 75g tank size).

The best indicator is going to be how your plants are doing...

So how are your plants doing? If they're doing good, then I wouldn't worry about it... :smile:
